    For the first 5-6 months my docking stating has been working fine.
    Now all of a suddent the screen is so dim when in the dock you can't even see it. Works fine when out of the dock. Any suggestions?

    Princess - yes, I can access the settings. I've pretty much tried them all to no avail.

    There is an icon on left side of the screen that toggles brightness between din ( bedside) and normal. Select this and the brightness will change.

    yeah i doubt the OP doesnt know about the little 'button' to dim or undim the screen if he/she has been using it for the past 5-6 months. But hey who knows.

    Come on really? Isn't that the kind of unhelpful post you just keep to yourself? What good does saying that do? He asked if gave him/her the answer.

    Done

    You would be moderately surprised at the amount of what people dont know after owning their phones for months...trust me, I deal with it daily...:icon_eek:

    I have 6 co-workers who were so impressed with my DX that they had to go out and either "upgrade" their phones to it, or get a new Verizon contract and service so they could get it...and almost daily they come up to me and start a conversation with "hey man, guess what I found out my phone can do...", and invariably, I have to point out that I have been doing that same thing for months...and each of them have had their phones for at least 4 months now.:icon_eek:

    My wife even...she has absolutely no clue what all her phone can or cant do...she just wants it to do what it is supposed to do...make calls, do text/pix/vid messaging and occasionally play some games and listen to some music. Her Contact Quick Tasks dont even have pictures added to the Contacts...:)

    Thanks Muddy, that did the trick. I feel really stupid for not thinking of that to begin with. I guess that comes with the territory once you pass 40!
